Chef Stefan prepares us for the holiday season with Thanksgiving tips and ideas!

For a Flavorful Turkey

Homemade stock reduction with butter for basting. If you are a baster, then how about arming yourself with an intense flavor packed basting liquid?

Try: In a saucepan, combine 4 cups of vegetable stock, 8 Tbs. of butter and a complimenting Spice Blend, such as Herb Turkey Rub, English Roast Rub, or Lamb & Pork Seasoning. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer until your basting liquid has reduced by at least half. This will intensify the flavors. As you baste, the liquid will combine with your bird’s drippings and add additional flavor. Read more about Chef Stefan’s Thanksgiving Tips & Ideas
